Hotel Argentina is a small hotel with a good breakfast. It is located near a small cove that is great for swimming (although the private beach costs ~30E/person). The hotel feels family run (that’s a good thing). It is a 20 minute walk (on a little trail) to Portofino. Portofino is worthy of a visit, but crazy-expensive (E15 for a... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Hotel Argentina. Our room (No. 11) was simple but lovely, clean and spacious and looked out over giant trees full of cicadas. The bathroom was newly renovated, the shower was good and the towels were quality. Paraggi is an excellent and peaceful location between the more buzzy Santa Margherita and upmarket, slightly overrated,... More

First, a big thank you to Maurizio, the receptionist / Manager who greeted us most warmly to check us in & ensure our car was safely parked with the cycles on the back. Maurizio was also most helpful when a personal "emergency" arose. He not only responded to our needs by phone, but also went the extra "mile / Kilometre"... More

Portofino is the high fashion, fancy expensive place in this area. Paraggi is 2km walk over the hill. Argentina is a familyrun, well kept small establishment. The staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are simple but clean and have a quiet AC. We got a room with no view at all. The beds are very hard, so we... More

Dear Guest thank you for having stayed in the cosy Hotel Argentina. All you write is right. Why to stay in Portofino when one can stay and enjoy a unique Paraggi. Quiet, charming village. Beds are standard hotel beds, average to try to please everybody but not all evidently. Beach in Paraggi is mainly private and the small public one... More

Fantastic location on the beach and the short walk to portfino was beautiful. Staff were friendly, welcoming and more than happy to help with advice about the local area. A lovely room with comfy bed. Would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking to explore the picturesque local area.

Best little find anywhere! Perfect location. Great breakfast Ambiance is important to me and this little gem is terrific. Clean, beautiful, cozy, quiet night's sleep, great windows that open with private shudders. A beautiful walk to Portofino. Great little town.

We have been traveling Europe in a car with another couple, rarely booking ahead we usually start looking for accomodation around 3pm. We were heading to Portofino but came across Hotel Argentina and stopped to ask the rates. We immediately felt at ease with George the owner, an extremely pleasant guy. We booked in for the night and George explained... More
